Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

I suppose you mean how to be able to stop the habit. That is really good that you want to stop smoking because it is really very harmful. Just the fact that you want to give up smoking is a good starting point. The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may also join smokers anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i. E. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here? s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world? you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

You need to take action on the advice and suggestions given to you on this forum and your local doctor. Writing the same question again and again will only give you temporary relief from anxiety. For long term relief you will need to take some different kind of action. To me, you are not looking ready to make changes yet. This is your choice and decision.

Dear doctor,
my daughter 17 years old recently completed her 12th exams quite she is bright student in her class but ...
Please talk to your daughter or show her this response. At her age she is probably going through a spurt in her male hormone, testosterone. Because of this there are three identified behaviors affected by it: she will become sexually active, aggressive and rebellious, and she will have acne and pimple problems. It is not because she wants to behave like this; it is the effect of the chemical. What you need to essentially follow is this: become her friend and stop all parenting and moralizing (that time is realistically over), meet with her friends and call them over to the house, give her a lot of time, listen to her even when you don? t agree with her (you cannot tell her anything without knowing what she has to say), follow the path of least resistance, use the help of a close relative she respects, a friend, or teacher to find out about her and to even tell her to do some things you want but all this in strict confidence. During the hormonal imbalance there will be a lot of things going on in her mind and she may temporarily lose awareness. There is nothing to worry about and this state of confusion will last for exactly two years and then it will stabilize and she will feel normal and even better. Now my biggest concern is that 82% is itself phenomenal under these circumstances and must be acknowledged by all and sundry as good achievement. We push our kids for too much and then what is actually good is seen even as failure. I suspect that she is going through this misperception. You just mark my words, she is going to do extremely well if she gets out of this slump in her mood and gets back to working smart and winning ways will come her way. These disappointments are her stepping-stones to success. All great people have experienced setbacks in their path to success, and they have become great achievers because of those setbacks. She is a great kid and has to only work through this presumed failure. Later she can always show how well she did in spite of this!

Dear , anxiety disorder is a disorder and not a disease. You should understand the eifference between mental disorder and mental disease. Mental diseases are treated with medicines and mental disorders are treated with other holistic methods. I need to have more information so that I can help you wean off the medicines. Online counseling, psychotherapy and life style changes should help you. Post a detailed private question to me. I will help you manage your anxiety disorder. Take care.

I am sorry to say NO. Depression is a mental disease. If your daughter is taking medicines for 18 months, she is ought to feel better. Now you may talk to your psychiatrist to slowly taper that medicine over a period of another 18 months. If symptoms relapse, the medicine should not be stopped. Work with your psychiatrist. Psychotherapy methods will teach your daughter to manage her depression. You may post a private question to me with every detail and I shall provide all the required steps to be taken to manage your problem (for a fee).

I am a 24 year old male. I am having problems speaking properly mainly due to breathlessness. I also get sudden panic attacks when others call my name in meetings etc causing me to stutter in my speech. Sometimes I just cannot start with the word I want to start with, and I instead have to insert two words before starting the sentence, like "Um" "Basically" "So. Etc. I think I have some sort of anxiety disorder. Its gradually becoming worse, due to which I'm avoiding many things I normally enjoy like team outings, group events etc, simply because I can't talk properly. Is there any over the counter medication to relieve this anxiety/panic attack problem?

The symptoms you have described suggest more towards a social anxiety disorder. People who are very shy, have fear of being criticised in public have these symptoms. There are anti anxiety drugs available for treatment. But more so practising in front of mirror, doing relaxation techniques is a must too. Your problem can be settled in course of time with treatment. Kindly consult a psychiatrist.

Dear Lybrate user it's k to have such feelings but at the same time you need to understand these feelings will not be helpful for your relationship only. These feelings seemed to be cause of some kind of insecurity or fear of loss. Try to identify the reasons for it. Discuss and communicate with your BF about this. It will help you. It natural to be with someone whom you love and continue to be with him forever. But at the same time v have other relations too. Those people also play important role in our life and need same amount of time and love. Nowadays v have technology in our hand which makes distance shorter. You wil be always be connected to your BF Through technology. There is also a famous saying distance makes heart go fonder. So this 2 days distance may increase your love for him and soon when you will be keen to meet him and will enjoy more. I hope these tips will help. Take care.

You are interacting too much about office work. You are neglecting your personal care. Everyone has personal office. Doctor has so many patients regularly. But always he takes very much care in all aspects. He does not confused. Doing work very systematically. He never takes his work into home. He relaxed when the work is over. He does not think about his patient's condition in home. Every day comes serious problems do or die situations. But he never take the situation in to home. Or never applied his personal status. It is professional life. So professional life is different from personal life. You are equating both professional and professional life status. Then it iscause of no sleep. It may affect on body also. So take rest when work is over. Relax very well in the middle of the work. Do not be tensed. Feel always comfortable. Be share your all feelings with your friends and family members. Be happy all the time. Do some good exercises. Practice yoga and meditation also. Ok all the best.

You need to do breathing exercises. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality.

This is not a physical medical problem. I wanted to speak to a doctor about my social anxiety, and what I can do do gain control over this. Since I was a small child I have been very shy. Now that I am an adult I am less shy, but still have problems speaking to others. Not just strangers. I also have a problem speaking with my own family. People that I do not feel 100% comfortable around. I enjoy being around large groups of people, but I have a problem speaking to them. It seems like when I speak I am spending more time on my facial expressions, or what I said the last time I spoke, or how the person I am speaking to thinks of me, or what I will say the next time I say something to this person. By thinking about everything other than what I'm actually saying I tend to say words incorrectly. I'll have to repeat the word to correct it. Then, I'll be so humiliated that I just said a word incorrectly and how embarrassed that I am that I continue to say the wrong words or continue to say the words improperly. I also find it very difficult to look folks in the eyes for too long. Especially during silent moments. I am a very affectionate person, and I find that I need to be loved on physically and told that I am loved, but I find it difficult to get too close to people I'm not very comfortable with. I also find it difficult to keep friendships. It's not because my friends don't want to be my friends anymore. It's because when I feel like I'm getting to close to a friend, or that I'm opening up too much I shy away. I won't answer the phone for that person anymore or I'll make an excuse to not meet up with them and keep our plans together. My relationships with my husband, my children and my sister and mother are all very normal relationships. I'm also very close to my father, he was my favorite parent when I was growing up and I even work with him everyday but I find that I feel very nervous around him all the time. More so because I'm afraid that he will see how awkward and strange I am. I have always seeker my father's approval all my life and being in front of him everyday while working is almost too much for me to handle. It's somewhat overwhelming. I'm constantly afraid I will mess up or do something wrong and my fear is that he will see it. I almost feel as if I love him so much and look up to him so much that I prefer to not be around him everyday due to the higher risk of letting him see how strange I am. Or maybe that he will find out that I'm not as smart as he thinks I am. I know these feelings are not normal. I can't just do something mindlessly. I'm constantly mapping out in my head my every move, but that almost always causes me to mess up what I'm doing because it's impossible to map out my every move and word but still focus on what I'm doing and saying. I wish that I could just relax. I think my fear is humiliation, or showing people that I'm not terribly smart, but part of me feels like I am very smart. What is wrong with me?

hi... I think the root cause of your problem is only one that you are not loving yourself. And when you are not loving yourself your self confidence is going lower and lower. So just start loving yourself and everything will fall into their place. Now the question is how to love ourselves?.. here is my answer for it : start praising yourself. Daily say loudly one positive sentence about yourself to yourself in front of a mirror. Indulge yourself in the hobby which you love. Don't seek others approval for anything you do. Learn to take responsibility of your act. I would suggest you to take part in some team activity. Remember it is you only who can help you not anybody else. if you want further guidance I would be glad to guide you . All the best. regards Sunita

Dear, anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

Stammering is a speech disorder which affects your and personality. I can understand it has been giving you lot of anxiety and doubts. What you need is a therapist who can retrain the way you speak. As a start I would like you to read aloud as much as possible by taking each letter of a word at a time. L- e- t - t - e - r. Llllllllllll. Each word should extended as much as you can. This should continue for half an hour daily. Then you need to do relaxation exercises. After practicing this for one week. I will tell you next step.

Dear psychosomatic disorders usually remain status quo, i, e, as it is; unless there is some traumatic event occurs in your life and you can not cope up. Since you understand yourself well, you should be able to protect your self from the worst case scenerios like severe depression. Please remember most people have some or other minor or major problems, it is important to remain mentally strong to be able to face life as it comes.
